In December Angelina and Jens united for an op-ed in The Guardian, with the actress  writing how the NATO alliance could be a role model and 'leading protector' of womens' rights, and ending gender-based violence. Jolie wrote: 'In our different roles we have seen how conflicts in which women’s bodies and rights are systematically abused last longer, cause deeper wounds and are much harder to resolve and overcome. Ending gender-based violence is therefore a vital issue of peace and security as well as of social justice.'      

The visit to NATO HQ was the latest stop on Angelina's tour of Europe, with the star seen meeting with France's First Lady Brigitte Macron on Tuesday.

The meeting was to discuss her recent visit to Jordan and urge members of the UN Security Council to resolve the conflict in Syria.She later attended a beauty launch at the Guerlain headquarters at the end of the night.Earlier in the day, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Special Envoy was seen taking a break from her charity work as she enjoyed a day of culture in the City of Light with her six children.

Angelina shares her kids with ex Brad Pitt, who she announced she was splitting from in 2016.

They share Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knoxwhile Maddox, Pax and Zahara were adopted from Cambodia, Vietnam and Ethiopia respectively. The family trip to Paris comes after Angelina took daughters Shiloh and Zahara to a Zataari refugee camp in Jordan last week.The humanitarian said that her daughters 'asked to come' with her to meet with Syrians displaced from the country's on-going civil war which began nearly seven years ago, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

She said: 'They’ve spent time today speaking and playing with children their own age who have been forced from their homes, whose family members have been killed or have disappeared.'Who are struggling with trauma and illness, but who at the end of the day are just children, with the same hopes and rights as children in any other nation.' Angelina served as a Goodwill ambassador for the UN from 2001-2012.During her time working with the organisation, she has carried out almost 60 field missions and become an advocate on refugee and displacement issues.
